president could. if obama nearly tried, it could produce a million jobs in the oil and gas industry. that's not even including the ancillary small businesses or the factory jobs that we moved here from other countries to benefit from our cheaper energy costs. but here's the rub. in order to achieve energy independence within president obama's time in office, the president would have to embrace natural gas as a surface fuel, the way they do in other countries with bountiful gas reserves. he has the ability to order government automobiles, trucks to convert to natural gas. that would then foster a huge job-creating infrastructure and make the importation of oil from diesel fuel one-quarter of all our imports into an irrelevance. however, if the president did that, his environmental base would be furious. so instead, he says, he favors all sorts of energy. hey, that's the same thing as doing nothing. he needs to say natural gas is our fuel. we're going to use it to clean up our skies and also become energy independent. sound impossible? listen. i'm not talking about giving this industr
